Ericsson and Intel have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to collaborate on the development of 5G use cases that can accelerate digitalisation in Malaysia as well as spur the adoption of the new technology by enterprises in Malaysia.
The companies will collaborate on their respective technology expertise to show how communications service providers (CSPs) can accelerate 5G adoption and expand their business-to-business (B2B) engagements based on 5G use cases.
Head of Ericsson Malaysia, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh David Hägerbro said Ericsson’s collaboration with Intel in Malaysia will contribute to the adoption of 5G and development of the local ecosystem that will in turn drive Malaysia’s digital transformation.
“This will also ensure the country has a distinct advantage compared to other markets in the region when it comes to foreign investment,” he said in a statement today.
Intel Malaysia managing director of Intel Malaysia AK Chong said, with the increasing digitalisation of the society and economy, 5G is becoming a fundamental component to drive innovation across all business segments.
“This collaboration demonstrates how the Malaysian 5G infrastructure with innovative edge services — powered by Ericsson and Intel technologies — will enable local enterprises to transform and accelerate their businesses through digital solutions,” he said.
